Get it Done List - January 2013 Report/ February Get it Done List

Hey there beautiful!! Only 10 days till you come to Nana's house for a visit!! Can't wait!!
Miss Ella got her "Valentine" apron in the mail today. What a pretty girl!!! She is going to be a "Cooker" like her Mama and Nana someday.
Today is the last day of January. How did that happen? I always love January as a cozy month to rest, read, and relax. It was a great month with Quilt Camp for 10 days with my good friends and lots of quilting projects completed. Now for the report!!



Get it Done List - January

1. Finishing piecing and quilt "Holy Toledo" quilt.

2. Create , piece and quilt two baby boy quilts.

3. Complete Section 1 of Comfort and Joy

4. Design a plan for a quilt using my Desden Plate Blocks

This antique Desden found by my friends Rachel Dennis served as inspiration for my current project. I love the fan border. Hope I can duplicate it.
I have 16 of these 12 1/2 inch Desden Blocks. I have a plan. I have green and pink for sashings along 9-patch blocks in the center of the quilt. Will work on the border when I get there. Would like to something similar to the antique quilt. But I do HAVE A PLAN!!!
So I am proud to say that my January Get it Done List 2013 is DONE!!!
Judy asked us if having a list helped us to complete our projects and I will say for me that is a YES!! I did several other projects during "Quilt Camp" but completed those in the list because they WERE on the list. I am a list person....makes me more efficient. I tend to get sidetracked easily. So thanks Judy....the List is working so far!!
Now for the February list!!
